Leeds United are entering a crucial stage of their season as they not only play four games in just over a week but face playoff contenders Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest.
What has been so impressive at the Yorkshire side is how Marcelo Bielsa has completely changed the style of play without adding too many players, indeed, the Argentine only signed two players on permanent deals over the summer.
As a result of the dynamic style of play Bielsa has instituted at the club, the players have been stretched to their limit and over the last few months, injuries have begun to crop up.
Recently, however, players have started to return to action for the club with Patrick Bamford coming back while Luke Ayling is set to come back into the team.
Yorkshire Evening Post journalist, Phil Hay has revealed that the club’s head of medicine, Rob Price is well known for cutting down the players’ rehabilitation time and looks like he could be key this season.
With Bamford back in the side, Bielsa now has a superb striker who can back up star forward, Kemar Roofe. Even better for the club, it looks as though Liam Cooper could be back in the next month and with he and Ayling returning, Bielsa will welcome back two of his starting back four.
Considering the number of games they’ll have to play and the pace that Bielsa likes to play at, it would seem that Price is the club’s secret weapon.
